What is the best way to create a release burndown chart involving multiple projects

We want to create a release burndown chart on a rapid board.
The rapid board is configured with multiple projects (such that it lists multiple versions and multiple sprints)

Is there a way to create a kind of burndown charts, taking into account all issues ?

Since Sprints now own an issue it's no longer possible to do this by simply creating a giant sprint that contains all the issues from the different project sprints.

Best regards,

For a single project, you can access the Release Burndown by first selecting the project and then picking agile, or get it from the reports icon in the sidebar: https://confluence.atlassian.com/agile/jira-agile-user-s-guide/using-a-board/using-reports/viewing-the-release-burndown

Frustratingly, there is no way of changing the filter behind the reports in order to pull in multiple projects or to analyse a project which has multiple teams using.

Older versions of JIRA had the sprint burndown gadget which ran against a filter, removing that was a backwards step sad

Hi Francis,

Using our plugin Intelligent Reports you can create burndown charts across any collections of issues you like, including across projects. If you like you could even put separate lines on the same chart for each project, along with one for all the projects combined. You design your output chart formatting in Microsoft Word and then fill in the data from simple point and click rules, including full JQL for data selection. You can try it free, so check it out.

Hi,

How can you do this accross projects? I can only select one project in the drop-down list.

Do you have an example/template for a burndown chart?

wkr,
Wim

Hi again,

The example templates only include a per project progress report with burn up chart, but you can either modify this reports rules or create a new report for your purposes.

In the modify chart rule you will simply want to specify a JQL query or filter that includes all the issues from all of the projects you want, or alternatively multiple JQL queries, one for each project you are interested in. A simple JQL query to get all rules can be "created is not empty"

See the charts section of the tutorial for more info on how to set this up. If you still have any problems let me know and we will create an example report for you.

Thanks,

Matt

Using filters is indeed a good solution.

Can we also create charts based on eg story points (custom fiels in an issue)? Or can the charts only be based on counting issues?

Wim

Charts based on story points (and any other numerical value) is part of the upcoming integration with JIRA Agile release. It should be available within the next few days.

That's great news.

Will there also be an example template?

Wim

Yes, some example JIRA Agile report templates will be included in the release.

Thanks,

Matt

Any idea when these templates will be released?

Wim

Hi Wim,

The release is now available. When you upgrade to version 2.3 or above the extra 2 sample templates, Sprint Timesheet and All Boards Progress Report will be installed automatically. More templates are also in development.

Thanks,

Matt

Try the Great Gadgets add-on for JIRA cloud (https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.stonikbyte.great.gadgets.plugin/cloud/overview). It offers a Release Burnup Burndown Chart gadget that is based on a JIRA filter. Put in that filter the issues from your project scope and group data by your sprint duration and you will have the burndown chart. Calculation is done by Story Points field.

See more details and other useful gadgets (like Team Velocity chart) here: https://bitbucket.org/StonikByte/great-gadgets-add-on/wiki/Home
